I am looking for some advice. I am trying to parse an XML file and then display data from it onto a table in a GUI, using Visual Studio. This will be done in C#. Does anyone have some advice on what is the best way to proceed with that? There will only be 3 columns. Do I have to import this data into a database and then display it?

Welcome to daniweb guiman!

Write a class to deserialze the xml, or create an xsd and using xml parsing... there are a hundred ways to go about it. You can load the data in to a DataTable and not necessarily the database so you can look at the data before you do anything with it. Its realy hard to give you any kind of advice not knowing what data you're working with and what the final format will be in the database.
